I love the local info for Moms! I want to introduce myself. My name is Jennifer Pate. I live in Studio City. I produce and host the award winning web series, Jen and Barb, Mom Life www.jenandbarb.com I also have a book coming out on January 3, but can be pre-ordered on Amazon.com now. It is about the need for all women to having something they're passionate about outside their roles as wives and mothers. http://www.amazon.com/Mothers-Reinvention-Reclaim-Identity-Potential/dp/1593156839/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1323887941&sr=8-1 I would be so appreciative for any help in getting the word out about the book. Thank you so much, Jennifer Pate JenLynnFish@aol.com
